Evan Williams Single Barrel
Evan Williams // Kentucky, USA
Every year since 1983 Master Distiller Parker Beam (and now his son Craig) has chosen select barrels for this single barrel series. Each bottle is dated with the vintage date of when the bourbon was distilled along with the year it was bottled. Additionally, each bottle bares a serial number of the barrel from which it was drawn. Bottled at 86.6 proof.

"Every single barrel bottle will have slightly different notes than the year or bottle before it. So these notes are more vague and are notes that you'll get from year to year. The nose shows tropical fruit, vanilla and caramel. The palate continues with the tropical fruits and has the addition of sea-salt caramels and peanuts. The finish is moderate length with fruit flavors continuing along with caramel and some spice."
